Philips Consumer Lifestyle group understands that people are the center of any successful innovation- whether it is the people that provide the necessary research-led insights or the people acting on them. While we can't control the quality of life consumers who inform our research have, we can control the well-being and experiences the people that transform them into industry leading innovation have under our roof.

That's why we recognize outstanding performance through internal programs like We are Philips and reward impressive quarterly outcomes with an extra day off. We also believe in living our health & well-being mantra by promoting work-life balance at all levels, and encouraging people to pursue their passions outside the workplace, so they can infuse the energy they derive from them into their work.

Take Eline de Graaf's story as an example- a decorated triathlete and Marketing Manager who uses inspiration and stamina to both carry her across the finish line at races and carry new male grooming product lines to the U.S. at Philips.

Building a brand is a journey. A race that you don't finish alone. And while your mind and body carry you the distance, it's your team that gives you the heart to finish first.

That's the people-centric mentality Eline de Graaf brings to work each day as a Senior Marketing Manager at Philips Consumer Lifestyle. She's delivering a new look to faces around the world for Philips Norelco users, with the same relentless spirit that drives her toward her next triathlon medal.
